ABOUT THE SHOW


Visionary creators Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare have crafted a sprawling yarn based on Homer’s epic poem that spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through an original and immediate voice. An Iliad tells the story of humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?

“Explosive, altogether breathtaking…Brilliantly meshes past and present calamity, with touches of the most caustic dark humor suddenly shifting into unimaginable pathos.” – Chicago Sun-Times

*Long Wharf’s Student Theatre Series hosts 10:30 AM matinees dedicated to student audiences. Student Matinees for An Iliad are on Friday, March 29th, Thursday April 4th, and Thursday April 11th, 2019.
